Very nice small park between Strawberry Banke and the water. Worth a walk through to look over the water. It was extremely hot when we visited but there is plenty of shade and a good breeze off the water.

This park use to be full of colorful flowers. But this time we went, it was just dull and depressing. Granted we went after the rain, but even than you would think it would still be beautiful.

This is a small garden area with beautiful flowers! Stop by if you're walking around the harbor! Close by there's is the women & men's restroom and a quick stop food place.

Walked around park before and during the intermission for The Little Mermaid show at the Prescott Park Arts Festival. Great place to kind of stretch your legs out during intermission. Very pretty trees and flowers. For those visiting out of town like myself and taking in a show, something to note, you can leave you your chair or blanket unattended... More

You get nice views of the waterfront and the flowers are very colorful. It was pleasant strolling around but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

The park is beautiful and definitely worth at least a half to walk through. Nice place for a romantic date.
